Change Material function

Postby Rolf Bergstrom » Wed, Jan 31 2007, 4:02PM

Has anyone else ever encountered the need for a change material function in cabinet editor for display boards and panels and such, like you can do with construction settings for cabinet members and face frames?
I just ran into a situation where this would be a huge time saver. I have some cabinets with many display boards and display panels with part editor cuts and mainly I need to change the panels to different materials as I have some choices in sheet size (several different sizes for veneer and 4' x 8' or 5' x 5' for plywood) and I want to see how each size nests.
No problem for the cabinet itself, just change it in construction settings. It would be nice to be able to click on a display panel and change the material the same way. As it is now I have to recreate all of the display panels for each material and save a new version of the cabinet. I can see where this would be nice for display boards too, like you can do with face frame components.

Hear, hear!!!

It would also be nice if the same function could preserve part editor cuts when changing materials for display panels or boards.
